Community sports roundup: Pair of former E-W runners honored

Miller Haller and Yukino Parle, both of Boise State, earned 1st-team All-Mountain West recognition.

A pair of Edmonds-Woodway High School graduates proved they are among the best cross country runners the Mountain West Conference has to offer.

Miler Haller and Yukino Parle, who both run for Boise State University, earned first-team all-conference honors at the Mountain West Championships held Friday in Logan, Utah.

Haller, a senior, placed seventh in the men’s race, completing the 8-kilometer course in a time of 23 minutes, 25.0 seconds. It was the second time Haller earned first-team all-conference honors, as he also accomplished the feat in 2017.

Parle, a sophomore, placed seventh in the women’s race, finishing the 6-kilometer course in a time of 20 minutes, 22.7 seconds.

The top 15 finishers in each race earned first-team honors.

Roe helps OSU to cross country title

Lake Stevens High School graduate Taylor Roe, now a freshman on the Oklahoma State University women’s cross country team, helped the Cowgirls win the Big 12 championship on Saturday in Waco, Texas. Roe was OSU’s fourth scorer, completing the 6-kilometer race in 21:13.2. She missed out on making the All-Big 12 team by one place.

Edmonds-Woodway High School graduate Deyago Peraza, now a freshman on the Western Washington University men’s cross country team, was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year after finishing sixth at the GNAC Cross Country Champioships on Oct. 26 in Billings, Montana. Peraza completed the 8-kilometer race in 25:27.4.

Peraza was joined by former Everett Community College runner James Jasperson (fourth in 25:24.5) in helping the Vikings claim the team championship. Both finished in the top 10 to earn All-GNAC honors.

Lake Stevens High School graduate Trevor Allen, now a junior at Central Washington University, also earned All-GNAC honors by placing ninth in 25:32.2.

Miller honored again by GNAC

Glacier Peak High School graduate Camron Miller, now a junior defender on the Western Washington University men’s soccer team, was named the GNAC Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season.
